    We didn't have any real traditions for St. Patty's Day growing up, but my new one will be to make these Thin Mint Truffles! They are AMAZING!

    No family traditions; although we will be starting one this year! Our little guy is 10 months and I'm looking forward to the St. Patrick's Day celebration. We'll be wearing green (of course) and making those cool green pancakes. I am going to try to do the shamrock rice krispie treats, but my kitchen doesn't like when I cook with marshmallows. They may turn out to be egg-shaped. Thanks for sharing this list!

      Rice Krispie treats really can be hard to deal with sometimes, can't they?? No matter how many times I make them I'm always surprised how sticky the mix is when it's hot!

    My family tradition for St. Patty's day is green milk. Which would go great with the green eggs. I also add green dye to the toilet water and tell my kids the leperchan had to use the bathroom before he left our house. LOL.

      Green milk is a family tradition for us, too! The whole green toilet water idea is definitely new (as far as I know) - and spreading like crazy thanks to Pinterest! ; )
